Fate of the Jedi, again: Leia makes four in our long night of new book cover reveals

Fate of the Jedi: Abyss

Yes, it’s yet another cover! But this one comes paired with the official summary for the book it will eventually contain, Troy Denning’s Abyss. Gaze upon it, and highlight the oh-so-spoilery blurb, beneath the cut.

Fate of the Jedi: Abyss

Tensions are heightening across the galaxy as more Jedi Knights seemingly go insane and anti-Jedi sentiment, fed by fear and mistrust, spreads from world to world. Han and Leia Solo have their hands full helping the Jedi Order keep the affected Knights out of the grip of government security — whose only solution is to freeze the offenders in carbonite.

Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, arrive in the mysterious part of space called the Maw, in search of more clues to whatever it was that caused Jacen Solo’s fall to the dark side. It is here, in the Maw, that they will confront the members of a lost Sith tribe who are determined to kill Luke.And it is here, too, where Ben will meet the Force ghost of his dead mother, Mara Jade.

  1. The Maw, Rouge Jedi, Carbonite, Force Ghosts….. Maybe Denning will round out the “Old is New list” by adding a Hutt, Bounty Hunters, a lost Empire superweapon, and a cloned “someone” from the the distant past…..

  2. Daala vs. and adventures in the Maw? Has Kevin Andersen started kidnapping people? All we need is new characters with no vowels in their name and it’s the Jedi Academy farce again!

    Where’s Stackpole when you need him?

  3. The more I look at them, the more I like the FotJ covers. They’re kinda’ minimalist and a little weird, but they’ve got an interesting pulp vibe that I think meshes with Star Wars really well.

  4. They’re just DIFFERENT. As much as I like seeing actual art (like Seeley) on the covers, it’s really easy to get all the SW books confused if you’re not already familiar with them. These stand out.

  5. I think I like the cover… but the blurb? Carbonite for their own protection, srsly? Evil via plot device? Lost Amazonian… I mean Sith tribe?
